Demand an End to the Narrow Ideas of Beauty and Acceptance
Low self-esteem is a growing epidemic and in many cases, victims are suffering from the culture of today's society that they are immersed in. The main culprit of this strong influence is the media which we so frequently come into contact with. Social media, especially, has become a pivotal tool in the way people view ideas of beauty and acceptance and often presents insecurities. The media is famous for using editing effects such as airbrushing, filters, and enhancing features. As a result, the idea of beauty has narrowed substantially, making thousands of people feel unaccepted and imperfect. The media has set standards that are impractical and impossible to meet. Something needs to change.
If you are someone that feels this is unfair or has ever felt insecure because of the media, please sign my petition. Far too many people have suffered mentally and physically from low self-esteem and something needs to be done. The media has gone too far in deciding what should be socially accepted and what shouldn’t. Take a stand and sign!
